The Axion Key is an ultra-compact, lightweight, handheld thermal imaging monocular, that is available in two models; Key XM22 and the Key XM30. With detection ranges of up to 950m-1200m (dependent on model) and a magnification of 2.0x-8.0x with optimal 4x digital zoom.The Axion Key XM22 has many new and important features, first and foremost is its sensor. The Axion Thermal Imaging Monocular uses a new 320x240 thermal sensor with a 12µm pixel pitch.
The Axion Key XM22 is perfectly suited to outdoor conditions, with a robust magnesium bodyshell, an IPX7 protection rating (fully waterproof), 960x720 LCOS micro-displays and can perform in both hot & freezing temperatures.
The device also comes equipped with its own internal stadiametric rangefinder, which helps aid observers in estimating target distances with the height of known objects. Additionally, Axion units have up to eight colour palettes to help enhance observation in varying conditions.
Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, upon activation, displays a second image with magnification in the top part of the Axion ' s display screen. This small image helps to zoom in on a target while retaining the rest of the field of view, maximising situational awareness.
The Axion has an instant start-up and an instant ' display-off ' mode, which helps to save energy and prolong the operation time of the unit and its dedicated B-Pack Mini Power System.
